I had to copy and paste that url, but it worked then.

Yeah, pretty cool. I don't know if I'd use it, but I'd love the chance to try one out.

No, don't think I would use one. I purchased a Zipper power scooter to use in getting around when needed. It folds up very nice for storage.

I am trying to find something new but like like the old Honda trail 90 or Honda trail 110. Little wheel are for use on pavement. We prefer to boondock in rough country and basically dirt roads, so the larger diameter wheels seem to work better.

My Zipper has larger wheels on the rear and work well in the Boon Docks. But, I do like the Honda Trail 90 and 110.

This is what I get when I google Zipper Power Scooter. How does this go anywhere except on pavement?

I just saw this article from: motocrossactionmag.com/amp/fishermen-rejoice-honda-trail-ct125-could-be-coming-back-in-2021/

Now, Honda is showing the new 2021 Honda CT125 Trail (in both red and camo colors) for the second time, which means that it will most likely go into production as a 2021 model–with no guarantee that American Honda will import it.

This is not the Zipper. The Zipper is a power chair being able to clip along at 6miles an hour and will run for 8 hours on a full charge. The Zipper has two small tires on the front and two large tires on the rear. My Zipper definitely runs well on dirt.

Go to www.Zingerchair.com. They are not cheap but very useful and very storable. I think you might like it. If you are 8nterested I can send you a card redeemable for $50.00 if you like. The only draw back is that it takes two hands to operate. Let me know what you think please.

Another option, a foldable fat tire e-bike. They can go 28 MPH with a range of 25-50 miles on a charge. They fit in the back of our SUV and don't require gas or oil.

We ordered 2 Lectric XPs a couple weeks ago.

These are getting to be very popular with the RV crowd.

That seems like the way to go Randy. A lot more useable than my Zipper lol.

Go to https://store.segway.com/segway-dirt-ebike-x160-x260 and check out their dirt bikes. They have a whole lot of other transportation alternatives that would suit RV'ers, but I love the dirt bikes. Their kick type scooters have wheels that would not do well on soft dirt, but the original Segway should be fine. Well worth the $$ unlike Chinese Rip offs.

Washington, DC (CNN)The Segway PT, which earned a place in pop culture but never realized its creators' world-changing ambitions, will come to an end this summer.

China-based Ninebot, which acquired Segway in 2015, will halt production of the PT, short for Personal Transporter, on July 15. Twenty-one staffers will be laid off at its Bedford, New Hampshire plant. Fast Company first reported the news.

The cheese and the hole are gone!

That is a bummer! I like the PT, not too keen on the Ninebot but didn't know the Chinese had taken over.

I bought a Lectric XP at Quarzsite in January. It is a great bike. Love it. Our ground is very sandy and the bike handles it very well.

It also folds down to a size that fits a Lowes plastic storage box that has wheels.
